Fair & Dedicated Legal Help for Spouses on Both Sides of the Issue

If a spouse claims that the other spouse is abusive, this can have significant ramifications on custody and visitation matters. A domestic violence victim will typically have the upper hand in a divorce case, especially when it involves children.

Usually an abusive parent will be denied custody and visitation rights, or in some cases, supervised visitation may be allowed. In unique instances, a court may go so far as to terminate a parent’s parental rights. Sadly, domestic violence is frequently alleged in divorce cases in order for one spouse to gain an unfair advantage in a custody or visitation dispute.

If you have been accused of domestic violence, we can help you ensure your side of the story is told. In the upcoming days, it is very important that you don’t do anything that would violate the restraining order against you and jeopardize your divorce case.

With the assistance of our Newton divorce lawyer, we will ensure all parties remain safe and that a favorable divorce settlement is obtained. For more information about domestic violence, call The Halks Firm at (781) 995-0107.
